Plot Summary: The walking man (an anonymous middle-aged salaryman) spends his spare time exploring the suburbs in which he lives at a gentle and relaxed pace - sometimes alone, sometimes in the company of his wife or his dog. The walking man finds nature prospering in unlikely places, chats with people he meets on his walks and finds pleasure in things he finds on his travels - be they sea shells, open air swimming pools or rubber band aeroplanes. There is no plot to speak of - and very little dialogue - just a series of (largely unconnected) observational episodes.
